You will no more require a nearby phone to use the messaging app Telegram on your wearable device like the Apple Watch. As Kosta Eleftheriou, the developer behind great Apple Watch apps like FlickType and WatchNotes has launched a new Nanogram Messenger app that is fast, easy to use, and brings the full Telegram experience on your Apple Watch.
Now, the main advantage of Nangram Messenger over that developed by Telegram is that the app is completely standalone. Meaning, if you have an Apple Watch with cellular or Wi-Fi enabled then you can view, send, and receive Telegram messages on your Apple Watch, even if your iPhone is not nearby. The Nanogram app supports FlickType which makes typing on Apple Watch’s display easier.
Here’s the Nanogram app’s description:
A fast, standalone Telegram app that works without your phone. Send, receive, and see all your messages right from your wrist – even when you don’t have your phone around! Experience the freedom of going truly phone-less with just your Apple Watch, while staying connected to your friends & family.
As reported by 9to5Mac, Eleftheriou has also said that the Nanogram Messenger Application is “directly connected with the Telegram using its official SDK and does not gather any information.”
Nanogram Messenger is free to download from the App Store and is a must-have application.
